COMMUNITY: Nelson Thomlinson win through to represent Carlisle United

An excellent final in the EFL Girls Cup competition

29 November 2017

EFL Girls Cup final between Trinity and Nelson Thomlinson

It was EFL Girls Cup Final day at Brunton Park last Saturday as Trinity School came up against Nelson Thomlinson for the right to progress to the area finals, to be held at Fleetwood Town in January.

The game was played in the Neil Centre and a keenly fought contest saw Nelson Thomlinson run out as the victors. The girls will now go on to represent Carlisle United, in January, with hopes of going even further in the competition.

CST coach Georgia Smethurst said: “It was good to see both teams play the game with an excellent attitude and we would like to congratulate all of them for reaching the local final.

“A special well done goes to Nelson Thomlinson who now go forward to the next stage in the New Year.

“There was an added bonus for some of the girls after the game as they got to meet two of the club’s first team players, and both teams received tickets to watch the Morecambe game as a reward for their efforts in the competition so far.”
